NFC East Watch: Murray Has Another Bad Day

ap-demarco-murray-eagles_5 (1)

Sure, the Philadelphia Eagles won a big game in December on Sunday, but you get the feeling former Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray probably isn't too happy with the game.

Murray, who reportedly complained about his role with his new team to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie on the plane ride home after a huge upset win at New England, once again was not the featured back in the Eagles' offense.

There were also reports Murray wants to return to Dallas after signing his five-year deal for $40 million in the offseason.

Murray had 11 carries for 34 yards against the Bills on Sunday, while Ryan Mathews had 13 carries and Darren Sproles had seven.

Sproles had the lone rushing touchdown.

Clearly, Eagles coach/GM Chip Kelly isn't worried about making Murray happy, and you have to wonder if there might be some legs behind the Murray-back-to-Dallas rumors even though it makes no sense financially with the cap hit the Eagles would take if they cut him loose.
